Ray Guy's is the most famous punter in the history of football. And, probably the best, even though for some reason no one wants to put him in Canton.

During an amazing career, he won three Super Bowls. The rings he picked up won't be immortalized either, as they're being auctioned off on Tuesday, August 9.

The rings will be sold by Nate D. Sanders auctions and, according to Sports Collectors Daily, they're being sold because Guy is filing for bankruptcy.

Guy won the three rings during his tenure with the Oakland (and Los Angeles) Raiders from 1973-1986, picking up rings in Super Bowl XI (a victory over the Vikings), Super Bowl XV (a victory over the Eagles), and Super Bowl XVII (a defeat of the Redskins).

According to the Sanders auction release, the estimated value of the three rings is between $75,000 and $90,000.

Currently, the high bid on the rings is $6.727.

Ray Guy was the greatest.  I knew Ray well at Southern Mississppi. He also was a defensive back and I believe led the nation in interception his Junior year.  I would go early to USM games just to watch him punt before the games....assume.  I also remember Ray stepping on the pitchers mound for USM after finishing up spring practice in football a few minitues before.  He was starting pitcher for USM. He had an assume fastball 100 mph plus.  He was a great Guy and would sit and chat with anyone as if he knew them well.  Hope he is doing well and yes he should be HOF.

I loved Ray Guy, Cliff Branch and Lester Hayes. I equally tried to emulate all of these guys growing up and playing in the schoolyard.

Thanks Ray. Whatever you need the money for do it, but perhaps Al Davis can float your costs. You were a HUGE part of the Raider's success.
A damn shame. Keep the rings if you can, but life is what it is, do what you gotta do.


And for the roiders and ragers out there.... TWO words... Lyle Alzado. Nuff said.

Thanks Ray, for the GREATNESS!

Some of theses posts are absolutely not warranted and filled with Hate!  Do you really think Ray Guy wants to sell His rings (all 3)??  Evidently, For whatever reason...Gambling problem, drinking problem, hmmmmm... Maybe a Health issue? Ever thought of that one? NO probably NOT!  A shallow mind like some of Ya'll have (if the Skull cap Fits) couldn't have.  Whatever the reason...You all will Never really know (all speculation) instead of sincerely having a Heart for the Guy (PUN intended).  Remember, He is Human (the Last time I checked) He is Probably going through some very difficult times right now.  Maybe instead of criticizng...you should empathize!

I remember in grade school, my buddy and I would go out on the play ground and pretend we were Ray Guy, and see how long we could hang the ball in the air.  how many kids today immulate a kicker on the playground??  None, because Guy was iconic, a game changer.  Very sad.  He can stay in my basement if he needs a place.
